Is he looking at my face? Did he notice that I said “childrens”? Damn it, is that a kernel stuck between my front teeth? Did he notice that I am wearing my magic perfume? Why is he not leaning in for a kiss yet? Okay sorry, I got a little carried away there. Moving on, I am here to discuss the few things that men might be noticing in you in the first meeting. It is not as easy to guess a man’s thought as conventions indicate, but let’s go!
…an everlasting smile ….lalala… Pardon my flower-child mood. But, yes he is checking out your smile, not that microscopic spinach piece stuck in your teeth that you have been nudging at, the whole evening. A bright and genuine smile flips his heart like a deft chef flipping pancakes! (Wait what? Ok. Focus!) Do not try to get the right amount of teeth show or crow’s feet, just let out your natural smile.No matter how lopsided it is, it will win his heart and more. (Ahem! I literally have zero chill in my life.)
He is hanging onto your words more than you guessed. He notices the nuances, little silences, nervous quiver- he is taking it all in. It is for him the most reliable research material. He does not only care about that mouth but also the words they produce. True though that those moments when his eyes slipped to your lips in all probability, that was not him observing the air vibrating off them as sound is produced. But men will be men right? (Hahahaha… *Slits own throat with stereotypes*)
He does need to be an expert in reading body language, it is only human to be alert about the person you are attracted to. He will notice the lean in your posture, if you are playing with your hair, maintaining eye contact. Because know this, if you are reading this article he sure has come across the many written about how you are giving him indications about your interest. So if you are interested in him, drop the hint subtly through your posture.
Yes, I find it odd as well, but my many male friends and scanty boyfriends have admitted to this fact. Hair is a thing for them. Not that you can do much about this but it is a piece of information that I thought worth sharing. Be it long, short, wavy, curly, straight- they pay attention to the care you put in it. If your man is old school he is probably into long hair. I am not going to comment on that. Fin.
It is one of the most beautiful sounds a human can make, unless one is as unfortunate as me and cackles awkwardly. But if your man is in sync withyou he might find that endearing. He will want to attune himself to the sound of your laughter if he is into you. So let go of yourself and take your hand away from guarding your mouth and laugh. Your man wants to be the one who can make you laugh so open heartedly. Sorry if he is not funny enough to deserve more than a smile for trying, tough luck!
(PS – My innocent people, he is in all probability another victim of the genetic disorder of male entitlement, and objectification is what they consider their sole right. So, know that he, before anything else, or somewhere in the list above has wedged in your racks and sang “I like big butts and I cannot lie…” in his head.)
